The windy wind that rages across the Netherlands on Saturday causes a lot of inconvenience. For example, the dyke between Enkhuizen and Lelystad has been closed and fewer trains are running for hours. Various events have also been canceled.
Because of the wind there is a lot of sand on the carriageways on the Houtribdijk between Enkhuizen and Lelystad. That must be cleaned up and the road remains closed until the end of the day.
As a precaution, the NS uses fewer intercity trains between Alkmaar and Zaandam. "Due to the strong wind, we are adjusting the timetable in the northwest of the country," the Dutch Railways report. "Nevertheless, the weather conditions can lead to extra inconvenience for train passengers."
Multiple events have been canceled due to the turbulent weather. Especially in the coastal provinces, organizers take it for granted. Fairs have been canceled here and there and the Flower Parade will not take place in Rijnsburg in South Holland.
Midden Zeeland airport scraps the flight days (demonstrations and sightseeing flights) on Saturday, which by the way will continue on Sunday and several events have also been canceled on Texel.
Wind force 8 on the coast
The KNMI has issued a yellow code for the coastal provinces. Weerplaza writes that the southwest wind can swell to a stormy wind force of 8 on the coast. The wind also blows strongly in the interior. The gusts of wind from 75 to 100 kilometers per hour cause nuisance.
In the morning there were several showers over the country, but in the afternoon it stays mostly dry. The temperature is between 20 and 25 degrees. During the course of Saturday evening the wind decreases, but on Sunday the wind is strong.

Wind whos in Noord-Holland
On Friday evening the summer weather in North Holland changed to thunder. This caused a whirlwind in Amsterdam, which caused further damage in North Holland. There were reports of fallen trees and fences from, among others, Bovenkarspel, Enkhuizen and Hem and from the Wadden Islands. Here and there tiles have also fallen off the roofs.
According to the KNMI, a whirlwind is a whirlwind that often hangs like a funnel-shaped trunk under a thundercloud and pulls in with the rain.
